Are you and your partner trying to improve your relationship? You can start by understanding one another's relationship needs. The 5 Love Languages Quiz is a tool that can help you to do this.
About The Quiz..
The 5 Love Languages® profile was developed by author Gary Chapman as part of his #1 New York Times bestseller The 5 Love Languages. The related quiz will provide you with a thorough analysis of your emotional communication preference. It will single out what Chapman refers to as "your primary love language."
After taking the quiz, you can analyze and use the information it provides to connect with your loved one with intimacy and fulfillment.
Here's how it works:
- Print copies of the quiz for yourself and your partner
- Both of you take the quiz either together or independently
- For each question, circle the letter in front of the answer that best matches your feelings
- Count the number of times you circled each individual letter and write that number in the Results list at the bottom of the last page
- Review the results together to learn what your partner values most in your love relationship
How to interpret the results...
You feel extremely loved when your partner compliments you on the way you look or on the things you have done. You love their encouragement and verbal support and save their cards and love notes as some of your most precious items. You are always filled with such love when you receive a card they've written that expresses their heartfelt love for you in their own little way, little peoms they might write, or if they ring you spontaneously during the day to say they love you.
Acts of Service
You feel so loved when your partner does little things to help you. You always notice when they are thoughtful and put themself out to assist you, even if you could do those things yourself. There is such a sense of love and thankfulness you feel when they do this.
You feel especially loved when your partner touches you in loving ways. Whether it's a spontaneous kiss, playful cuddle, or gentle, loving touch on the arm, you feel that touch convey the love your partner feels. You don't understand why people would prefer to sit far apart on different chairs or couches, when they could be touching or in each other's arms. When walking together, you really enjoy your partner reaching out to hold your hand, and you'd never say no to them giving you a massage.
There's nothing that makes your feel more loved than spending quality one-on-one time with the person you love. Great conversation and eye contact, flowing conversation, laughter and just being together. While fancy gifts and kindly spoken words are nice, you'd trade them any day for uninterrupted "together" time. You love it when your partner's mobile phone is turned off or they sacrifice other important activities to spend time with you. Whether it's fancy restaurant or just cuddling up on the couch to watch a movie and laugh about it together, you're happiest when you can share experiences together.
There's nothing better than receiving a thoughtful gift to make you feel loved in a relationship. Whether it's a single flower or something much more expenisive, you love being fussed over, spoilt and thought of. The fact that your partner thought to give you something then organized it is very meaningful to you.
